Well, I'm transferring to Rice this summer, and I think that if you scored 1490/2400 you should definitely retake it. Several people in the admission office said that your SAT score for a transfer was just as important as a freshman applicant. Sometimes you get contradictory answers from people on many of these questions, but all people I asked agreed that it was just as important for a transfer. When I asked some of them what my chances were for transferring, the first thing they asked me for was my SAT score. Although, it would make sense that it would be a little less important because you have a college track record. I scored 1690 on the SAT when I was a junior in high school, and I just assumed that I would have to retake it to be admitted. 2100 is the average score for a Rice student. Also, they're suppose to only look at your highest score; so a low score in your high school years won't hurt that bad. Anyway, I've been through the process; if you need any advice or help, just ask.
